Ship: m/v Ortelius

This was such a great trip. We left Ushuaia with some really bad forecasts for the Drake Passage, and they were true. The first night was rough, really rough. But it felt like it cut us off from the world. The whole trip was organized in an excellent way, great expedition guides, great Ortelius crew. Everybody was always ready to explain things, the captain and officers on the bridge, the zodiac drivers, the guides on the bridge, the guides ashore.... We had enough time to wander around during the landings, time to sit and absorb this wonderful world. And another great experience was to be without internet, email, telephone for 10 days. People talked to each other again, a truly wonderful experience. I don't know if we will ever do it again, but I sure feel like I should. A very great 'thank you' to everyone on board of the Ortelius!
